Winterthur Artisan Vendor Opportunities

This Deadline Expired: Monday, March 15, 2021

Experience fine craftsmanship at Winterthur during their first-annual Artisan Market. Many of the region’s most talented craftspeople will present their outstanding examples of modern-day artisanship.

For artisans interested in applying for a booth to present their wares, listed below is the weekend itinerary and information regarding locations, fees, and requirements.

As a native of Israel, Dganit grew up in a Kibbutz. She moved with her husband to the US in 1992. After years of creating art as a self-taught artist, she became a full time student at UNC Chapel Hill. Moving to Philadelphia, she earned her BFA with honors from the University of The Arts, and MFA from the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Art. Currently, she is working in her studio at the Crane Old School in Philadelphia.
In her work she is pulling from her reservoir of life experiences, memories, intuitive processes, and curiosity to construct a “place”, an environment – a landscape. Within it, she aims to present an idea composed of multiple layers, which focuses not only on the physical “being” of land, but also on land as a source of emotional and psychological mood.
